Maybe the invitation got lost in the mail? It only took 26 years but the World Champion 1985 Chicago Bears will finally be visiting the White House on October 7th according to CSN Chicago’s David Kaplan. Their Super Bowl celebration was cut short just a couple of days after their 46-10 win over the Patriots when the space shuttle Challenger tragically exploded during takeoff, killing everyone on board.
Most of the team and coaching staff are expected to attend. I’m most interested to see how Da Coach, a well known Republican, interacts with the Democrat Obama. Once upon a time, Ditka was being pushed to run for the Senate seat that Obama eventually won. Can you imagine what would’ve happened if Ditka had accepted the GOP’s bid to run for that Senate seat? President Ditka? That would be a step back – Ditka is God!
